Merlot 2020

Current Wines | Wines from 2020


A bottle of Merlot

Merlot is common in almost every wine growing region of the world. It is quite frequently found in cuveés but genuine wines are also not uncommon. Since repeated experiments with this grape convinced us of the potential of genuine Merlots we started to bottle them on their own and let the results speak for themselves. We have learned that the Merlot will yield first-class wines that can easily convince every diligent taster of the grape’s potential if it has been planted at a suitable location and treated skillfully

Tasting notes

Our Merlot shines in a strong red colour. It impresses with its delicate spicyness and hints of berries. On the palate it is smooth and full while nice tannins dominate the finish.

Food suggestion

Merlot is an excellent accompaniment to dark, grilled or roasted meat, steaks and game dishes.

Ageing potential

Reaches its optimum 2-3 years after the harvest. Can be kept at least for 5-6 years.
